While his teammates have received more of the buzz this offseason, Hunter Renfrow remains his quarterback's top wide receiver target. The offense will continue to feature Darren Waller, but the rapport Renfrow has continued to develop with Derek Carr may finally translate into consistent production for the underrated wideout. Bryan Edwards, Henry Ruggs, John Brown, and Renfrow all figure to rotate snaps this season, but if he can play at the level he has this summer once the regular season begins, Renfrow may lead the receiving corps in receptions. Currently 93rd in our wide receiver rankings, the third-year wideout may prove to be an exceptional draft day value for those in deeper leagues.
LV WR Hunter Renfrow - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Indianapolis Colts
Hunter Renfrow had three catches for 40 yards and a touchdown last week against the Broncos. It was nice to see him find the end zone, but it’s a little concerning to see only eight targets in two games after being such a target hog for much of the season.
This week, Renfrow faces a Colts defense that ranks sixth in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Renfrow should get back on track in this one. Renfrow lines up in the slot on 65% of his offensive snaps, and that’s where Kenny Moore lines up 68% of the time. Moore has been a great slash-defender and is headed to the Pro Bowl, but in strict coverage, he ranks 48th according to PFF. Start Renfrow.
